Figuring out a theme for your bachelorette party can be a daunting task. You want to make sure everybody feels comfortable so they can let loose.

At Sheplers western wear, we want you to plan the best western-themed bachelorette party possible. Go all out for the bride and put together the ultimate bachelorette party with this helpful guide.

Best Destinations for a Western-Themed Bachelorette Party


If you’re going to do it big, there’s no place bigger than Texas! Dallas is known for its city sights and one-of-a-kind experiences. Bar hop rooftop to rooftop, exploring the West End and the streets of Commerce and Elm. Take a pedal pub tour around the city and then hit the lakeside for a party at Lake Lewisville’s Party Cove.


Nashville has become the premier place for the best bachelorette parties, and for a good reason. Nashville is a total party town with a country twang, home to some of the most famous country bars in the United States and worldwide. They don’t call it Music City for nothing! Check out Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge and Legends Corner for some great drinks and square-dancing fun. Afterward, try out a pole dancing class at Studio Goddess, sure to be a riotous hit with the entire bridal party.

Western Themed Bachelorette Party Ideas

Match up Your Cowgirl Hats

If you’re all about coordination, you’ll want to make sure your posse is suited up and ready to take on the city with a little country attitude. Whether you go with a cheesy pink plastic ten gallon or go all out for matching Bullhide From the Heart Straw Cowgirl Hats, your party will look its best if you all go in for the same apparel.

Figure Out Who’s the Group’s Sharpshooter

Test out your sharp-eyes by heading to the nearest shooting range in the area. They have all the firepower you could need on hand, along with providing all the necessary safety equipment. Shoot at targets down the range to prove you belong in the gunslinging days of the Wild, Wild West. 

If there are those in the group skittish around guns, go to the nearest arcade and virtually test your trigger merit. Or, if you’re adventurous enough, sign up for a nearby paintball outing, or check out the new axe-throwing bar craze.

Pin the Pistol on the Cowboy Game

Picture “Pin the Tail on the Donkey,” but a little more risqué. Pin “pistols” onto a poster of a super fit cowboy. The person who gets closest to the target wins a prize and gets to take home the poster. Adding some sort of drinking game to this activity will make it that much more fun.

Horseback Riding

This is a must for all western-themed bachelorette parties. Throw on your Rock & Roll Cowgirl Bootcut Riding Jeans, take the backroad trails, and experience the great outdoors as a saddled-up posse. There are plenty of horseback riding expeditions within close riding distance of downtown in destinations like Dallas and Nashville. Just caravan up to the stable and get ready for an excellent escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.


We hope you and your bridal party pull off the best western-themed bachelorette party you can with the help of this guide. There are so many ways to personalize your experience. The most important thing is that everyone has a hollerin’ good time, dances their butts off, and builds lasting memories that forge stronger friendships.
